As for breaking up Larsson and Gelinas, I'm in favor - it's time to take the kid gloves off on Larsson, he's playing too well to be relegated to that role.

 

Why do you see that as taking off the kid gloves?  If anything, pairing Larsson with a rookie would be an indication that De Boer trusts Larsson more to carry his own weight. 

 

If it's at the cost of a few extra shifts, I don't mind.  As Gelinas gets better, the two should get more icetime.   And by next year, there's going to be no choice but to give Larsson 20+ minutes per game.

Gelinas will get lots of o-zone starts and if you pair him with Larsson that'll give Larsson 'soft minutes'. Gelinas should get those zone starts because of his shot but Larsson is playing very well and some might see him used better in a role with tougher minutes/more d-zone starts. 

 

I personally think they should let things be as they've been. Team is winning more often than not and Larsson is starting to look real good. No need to change things just yet.

He can take his time, as far as I'm concerned. Sitting anyone except harrold for Sal would be foolish imo

Yeah. One of Sal or Volchenkov in the lineup is probably a good thing, but not both. It's not Sal's fault they couldn't score or get a save for some of those games.

Especially since the recent winning has (gasp) mostly coincided with Cam coming up.

They're also 6-1-1 with Janssen lol

Volchenkov has actually been pretty good, and Salvador is still a good shutdown guy.  They're both really helpful on the pk.

I'd swap Harrold for Sal in a heartbeat.

But i think with how the Larsson and Gelinas pairing is going, we have a serious D logjam, which is what has been happening for the last year, and even more so with our prospects gaining experience.

I hate how Pete thinks having a dman on his off side is so taboo.  Don't get me wrong, it's a nice advantage if you can do it, but it's also not a necessity.

I absolutely hate the idea of playing anyone that you are scared to use in the 3rd or only want to play 4 minutes.

Jacob Josefson is scratched for many games for Cam, but the coach has no issue playing him 10-15min, but his replacement can only play 4?

If Gionta is gonna miss significant time, Josefson has to be the guy to replace him.  I do believe the Janssen honeymoon has run out.  Time for Tedenby.  I do wonder though if Janssen ignited this team.  I think we went 6-2-1 with him in the lineup.

If there was some tangible evidence (oh wait there isn't) to this he should be traded. Sell high.

While I think Deboer runs a pretty progressive system, it's clear he believes there is a place in the league for goons (which there isnt).  He believes Janssen adds something on the ice and will keep him in over the likes of Josefson and Tedenby.  I don't think the latter has a positive impact, but at least he is capable of playing 10 minutes a night, something Janssen is not.  When Gionta went down, the Devils were shuffling 10 forwards for half of the game.  That is not acceptable against strong teams, on the road and when you are fatigued. Deboer needs to get Janssen out of there ASAP. It's becoming a bit of a joke

Like I have been saying we need to give joe Whitney a shot. He's got 20 points in 19 games with Albany. We are starving for offense in the worst way, he can't be worse than Cam or Tedenby so with Gionta hurt - why not try it? We have a roster spot. Just give the guy a shot.

Somewhat off topic, but it is related to the roster:

 

When is one of our younger players going to break out offensively? It's getting so frustrating that the team is relying on almost strictly its veterans and its defense to generate offense. It's amazing that we're nearly 25 games into the season, and Jaromir Jagr seems like the only forward who is consistently putting up points (Elias too, but he is obviously recovering from an injury).

 

Our team has a bunch of players who have shown offensive talent in Brunner, Loktionov, Henrique, Josefson, and Tedenby, but not a single one of them has shown up much this season. The best of the bunch is Henrique with 8 points over 23 games.

 

You could make the argument that PDB has given the best minutes to the veterans (top 2 lines are mostly older players), but other teams have had their third lines produce. I really wonder what's going on with these guys and whether it's the system that's holding them back.
